Making exercise more enjoyable
Are you someone who finds exercise a struggle? Or maybe you’ve just not exercised in a very long time? We want you to know you’re not alone. Starting, or getting back into, an exercise routine can seem daunting for a lot of people.
The UK guidelines for physical activity are 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity activity a week. Being physically active is important for many reasons including reducing our risk of diseases such as cancer, but also for its positive effect on our physical and mental wellbeing.
Although the benefits are clear, in the UK people still aren't doing enough movement throughout the day, with as many 22% of people being considered inactive and not meeting the recommended guidelines for physical activity.
We want to help change this and make exercise enjoyable for all. In our new blog, our Health Information Officer, Olivia Rogers has shared some top tips for increasing motivation and making exercise more fun.
